The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) replaced the existing Trusted Traveller kiosks with new generation kiosks starting mid-September, 2014 and completed mid-October, 2014.
Initially, kiosks will be limited to NEXUS members only. CANPASS Air members will not have access to the kiosks at the initial launch. We will be updating the technology and we expect CANPASS Air members to have access to the kiosks in the coming months. In the interim, CANPASS Air members will be directed to the Special Services Counter to continue to receive expedited customs clearance.
CANPASS is a series of Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) programs that expedites the border clearance process for frequent, low-risk, pre-approved travellers into Canada. Choose which mode of CANPASS best suits you:
If you are travelling by air, there are three different CANPASS programs available to you to expedite your border clearance process.
If you often fly into Canada by commercial airline.
CANPASS – Corporate Aircraft
If your company operates aircraft that frequently flies directly into Canada from the United States.
CANPASS – Private Aircraft
If you operate a private aircraft that often flies directly into Canada from the United States.
Do you frequently travel to Canada directly from the United States on a small private pleasure boat? If so, one of the CANPASS programs for marine travel could be for you.
CANPASS – Private Boats
If you often enter Canada from the United States in a private pleasure boat.
CANPASS – Remote Area Border Crossing
If you cross the border at remote areas in Ontario from Pigeon River through to and including Lake of the Woods, the Canadian shore of Lake Superior, Cockburn Island and Sault Ste. Marie (upper lock system).
As a CANPASS program member, whether you are the person in charge of the boat/aircraft, a member of the crew or a passenger, you must meet these responsibilities:
